2022 Orbea Terra : Gravel bike made for adventure on and off the road

Warminster Wobble – Orbea launches a new version of its popular Terra gravel bike today which offers some serious one-upmanship on previous generations, principally with its ‘gravel specific’ geometry.

The new Terra comes in seven different models which range in price from £2,899 to £4,999 and offers both 1× and double crankset systems. The bike comes in a range of builds, with a choice of SRAM Force eTap AXS, SRAM Rival eTap AXS, Shimano GRX Di2 and Shimano GRX. Orbea says the new Terra is comfortable on both road and gravel without sacrificing performance.

2022 Orbea Terra: Faster and more concise

Since launching in 2017, Orbea’s Terra range has been a popular choice for gravel riders, who have favoured its road-style geometry, however the 2022 bike’s gravel geometry changes all that.

The top tube is longer and the stem is shorter for more precise off road handling and the bike has a longer wheelbase for added stability and comfort. Essentially, it’s out with road and in with the gravel.

Notably, the new Terra frame allows a wide range of brackets and tyres.

It uses asymmetrical chainstays so the bike could run 2× drivetrains with inner chainring sizes up to 34t.

A nice addition to the Terra is the creation of a storage area inside the down tube.

A similar principle to the 2022 Orbea Orca Aero but far less in your face, the storage space is hidden behind the bottle cage and offers space for spares and tools.

The new Terra is set up for some light bikepacking with multiple mounting points, for mudguards and the like.

2022 Orbea Terra: Comfort and control

The Terra fork is longer than the previous generation which Orbea claims offers the best combination of comfort, tyre clearance and torsional stiffness.

The bike has clearance for tyres up to 45mm wide on 700c wheels and 50mm on 650b wheels, making it versatile for most adventures.

Unlike the 2022 BMC URS LT gravel bike, the Terra doesn’t have any sort of front suspension, but Orbea says the increased stack and reach make longer and challenging rides more comfortable.

Orbea has also focussed on comfort opting for a shorter seat tube at a more relaxed angle that allows the 27.2mm seatpost to flex more.

The brand says this allows the bike to adapt to rough surfaces without losing composure.

The bike comes in six sizes, from XS to XXL. Reach and stack for a size M are 389mm and 570mm whilst head tube angles range from 70 to 72 across the range.

Most models come with the OC gravel handlebar with a 12-degree flare and Orbea claims this handlebar can help shoulders and neck relax whilst also add control on descents and leverage on climbs.

There is also the option of a handlebar with a 16-degree flare.

The Terra comes in three different colours: Blue Carbon-Leo Orange (Gloss), Stone Silver (Matt)-Ice Green (Gloss) and Infinity Green Carbon (Matt).

Riders can choose to customise the new Terra using Orbea’s MyO programme.
